About Us

Welcome to the Grosse Ile Wrestling Club
Home of the Red Devils!

  • Our season runs November through March
  • GIYRA Wrestling is a Co-ed Program.
  • We are a registered club through MYWAY.  They are a statewide organization divided into 8 regions.  We are in the East region.  MYWAY runs local tournaments every Sunday from December through March, with a regional championship in mid-March and state championship near the end of March for the top 4 regional finishers. COMPETING IN TOURNAMENTS IS OPTIONAL and cost approximately $15 per tournament.  Wrestlers are grouped together by age, weight and experience.  Weight classes vary by age group.  A wrestler’s birth year will determine their age group.                                                                                                                                                 The 2019-2020 season age groups are:

                                            2005-2006 must be in middle school

                                            2007-2008

  • Each age group is divided further into experience.  Novice divisions are for those with less than 2 years wrestling experience.  Open divisions are for those more advanced wrestlers and more than 2 years experience.  Tournament schedule is organized by MYWAY and is available on their website  https://www.mywaywrestling.com
